Why stay here ...

Set in a quiet, simple and spacious location, Stover Club Site lies next to a beautiful country park on the edge of Dartmoor. If you crave a tranquil break and a wealth of lovely scenic walks, this is the ideal caravan site for your holiday. The Stover Park itself offers a variety of walks - you can choose secure expeditions guided by the Park staff or if you fancy something more challenging the wilder terrains of Dartmoor nearby are waiting to be discovered.

Visitors to Stover Club Site can enjoy the other aspects of Dartmoor by following the nature trail through a lovely valley to see Becky Falls. You can also opt for a leisurely drive to Canonteign for another country park well worth visiting as well as a host of delightful waterfalls. There is also a memorable Heritage Trail near the caravan park called the Templer Way; it runs from Haytor right through to the sea at Shaldon.

Less than a mile away is Trago Mills Family shopping and Leisure Park which includes super karts, trawler boats, steam and model railways plus an interactive animal enclosure so there is something for everyone nearby.

Digital TV signal booster in operation (no lead required).

Please note: this site does not have a toilet block.

Walking notes:

Dartmoor National Park is the largest and wildest area of open country in Southern England, with over 368 square miles of moorland, forest and woodland. Stover Country Park is adjacent to the site, via a public footpath to the rear of the site and along a disused railway track. The park has a lake, walking routes, nature centre, aerial walkway and is great for dogs.

Supermarket notes:

The nearest supermarket is the Co-Op next to Trago Mills, 2.3 miles away and with motorhome access. Tesco is just outside Newton Abbot – proceed towards the town and then follow the signs for Newton Abbot Racecourse. Sainsbury's is just off the Penn Inn Roundabout on the A380. Asda is in the town centre.

A Delightful site

Access to this site, even with the largest of outfits, couldn't really be easier. A wide entrance gives access direct off the A382. The site has no toilet block, and the friendly wardens are keen to point this out on arrival (do some people not check the details before booking?) The site is well kept and is beautifully set surrounded by mature trees. Service points are conveniently located and were kept nice and clean and tidy. Excellent 4g coverage on EE and the TV booster system worked perfectly, picking up a wide range of channels. The site has a good dog walk, but longer walks are available in the adjacent country park, with a pedestrian gate just a few yards from the entrance. Road noise in unavoidable. The Devon Expressway gives off a constant background hum and boy racers opening up their throttle on the adjacent A382 would bother some visitors. A large Co-op at Trago Mills is available for provisions just 3/4 mile away.

Lovely, quiet site

This is one of our favourite sites for a quick getaway. The site is spotlessly clean and well cared for, with Stover Country Park a 5 minute walk away. The pitches are mostly level, well maintained and feel larger than some sites we have stayed on. The site has a lot of wildlife in and around it and quite often you can be visited by friendly ducks and squirrels. The only reason I have rated it down for families are the lack of toilet block, showers, play area and laundry. For us, this is not an issue and probably makes the site more appealing as it is never overrun. The nearby town of Bovey Tracey is lovely with some independent shops and a Coop and Tesco Express. There is also a large Coop at Trago Mills, a 5 minute drive away. Newton Abbott is a larger town with large Asda and usual shops /banks you would expect in most towns. Torquay, Paignton, Brixham and Dartmouth are all less than an hour drive from here. We return here a few times over the season and even after only a couple of nights genuinely feel like we have had a break.

Wonderful site

This is our last day here. We have been extremely lucky to have had lovely warm weather, no rain at all. It's a good site with easy access from the A38, no single track roads. The site is kept in fine condition. The wardens are great. We didn't miss the toilet or shower block as we used our own bathroom. It quiet here just the birds singing and here at the far end of the site we count hear any road noise. Nice to see the ducks wandering round the vans and the squirrels in the trees. This is our 2nd visit of 9 nights and won't be the last. The dog loved it too because he was able to walk from the site into the HUGE STOVER COUNTRY Park.

Peaceful week at Stover

We had to postpone our arrival for two days due to the windy weather but on our arrival on the Sunday we were met by Kath with a smile and details of where we could pitch. Access to the site is easy off the main road into Newton Abbot. Leaving the site and turning right can be a bit of a challenge with a caravan as it is a busy road. We stayed for 8 days which, despite being near a main road was fairly quiet from traffic noise. The only thing that shattered the peace and quiet for us was that there is a clay-pigeon shooting range nearby and operates on a Thursday and Saturday with shooting going on for most of the day. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and we will return. For us the site was ideal, easy to access, good clean service points, no toilets or shower, but we have on-board facilities in our caravan. Lots of wildlife in and around the site, visiting mallard ducks, Grey Squirrels visiting the pitch, and lots of small birds flitting around visiting the bird feeders set up around the site. Tawny Owls calling at night too. There are no facilities for children on site but there is a lovely Country Park adjacent to the site. Although it was quite busy during our stay there was little if any noise coming from the park. There is a nicely stocked information room and Kath and her partner are on hand if you have any queries. Within 4 miles there are three major supermarkets, Asda, Sainsbury and Tesco and a little further out is Morrison's. Close by the site is Highbridge Caravans if you need some assistance with your van or have forgotten something. There is also a mobile engineer who will visit the site if you need one, even on a Saturday afternoon. All in all this is a site that we will return to for exploring more of south Devon and Dartmoor.

Peace and Quite

If you want to rest and relax amoungst the trees and parkland, with a nice golf club next to the site, a dense forest and huge lake 200 yards away with an abundance of wildlife, come to Stover It is a clean well maintained site, all pitches EHU, but no toilet or shower block, but who wants these when most modern caravans have been fiited out with showers and toilets. If this is what you're looking for, then this is the place for you - nice friendly Kath to greet you and her husband warden to help you settle in. Newton Abbot is just 4 miles away. Trago mills is 2 miles away and for caravan spares a dealer 'Highbridge Caravans' is close enough to walk to. Leave refreshed - we did 4 times this year!¬
